Convatec Group Plc, worth watching we think

Convatec Group Plc (LSE:CTEC)

Usually, in an attempt to produce something which is more than just about numbers, we take a glance at what a company is about. Our usual sources, the corporate website and Wikipedia, generally will provide something interesting or funny. With Convatec, the company being pretty focussed on their medical product ranges, and for those with an absurd imagination, (such as myself) information about a company who specialise in “Wound and skin care, ostomy care, continence care, critical care, infusion devices” proved a step too far.

Suffice to say, they’re the real deal.


To go straight to the numbers, we actually quite like the current position of Convatec share price. At time of writing, they’re trading around 229p, the share “only” needing above 234p to hopefully trigger some movement toward an initial 250p. While such a movement may not sound like much, visually it’s quite useful, exceeding the long term downtrend sine 2017 and better still, should it trade above 250p, our long term secondary of 277p becomes a valid ambition.

Curiously, we increasingly find ourselves in a strange position with price movements. For instance, the scenario above is thanks to share price history AC (After Covid) but if we opt to review the big picture potentials BC (Before Covid), a quite different scenario is presented, one where we’d typically view the share as heading to 300p with secondary, if bettered, a longer term 365p. It’s possible insufficient time has gone by to allow us to understand which model the market is working to. When the near universal ‘Pandemic Drop’ occurred in March 2020, does this represent a point in time at which the market has opted to start again in calculating price movements. Or will it be the case, once AC movements become exhausted, shall Big Picture influences take over?


Regardless, we suspect Convatec shall prove worth keeping an eye on, in the weeks ahead. The price needs below Red (174 currently) to cause a panic.

SUCCESS above means both FAST & SLOW targets were met. ‘CESS means just the FAST target met and probably the next time it is exceeded, movement to the SLOW target shall commence.

UPDATE. We often give an initial and a secondary price. If the initial is exceeded, we still expect it to fall back but the next time the initial is bettered, the price should continue to the secondary. The converse it true with price drops.
